Abstract

The Karnataka state is having about 5000 ha of brackish water areas suitable for fish culture. The results of these experiments indicated that fishes like mullets, milk fish and Sillago sihama and the prawn, P. indicus, could be cultured advantageously in the brackish water fields of the Mulky region. Since the fields are found to be very productive, no artificial or supplementary feeding is required for the culture of these fishes.
